130 Most Popular Armband Tattoo Designs

Tattoos not only grace various parts of the body but have a lot to say about the attitude and personality of the bearer. As a result, tattoo art has a great fan following around the world, with people of all ages and sexes loving to have the various parts of the body inked with cool and alluring designs. One of the most stylish forms of tattoos are arm band tattoos, which are shaped like bracelets and embellish the arms, forearm, shoulders or wrists to perfection.

At the same time, they are as easy to flaunt as they are to conceal when needed. This is the primary consideration while choosing a tattoo and its placement by the discerning bearer. Men love to bear on their well sculpted shoulders while women prefer to have these delicately designed tattoos on their wrists. These tattoos attained raving popularity in the nineties when global celebrities popularized their trend by getting them inked. An additional reason of the tattoos being well loved is that it is comparatively less painful to have them inked since the arm area is more of the muscle and skin, rather than bone. All these factors have come together to make them a rage since the past few decades and the trend continues to grow.

Popular Design Options

As the name suggests, armband tattoos are shaped like bands though there may be slight variations depending upon the design element chosen by the bearer. Celtic designs and tribal patterns such as maori, mandala make a hot favorite for this kind of tattoos, and these designs are equally popular amongst both the sexes. Floral patterns, butterflies, vines, hearts and insects are also used commonly as the design elements in such tattoos. Some people opt for quotes, script and text designs which are shaped in the form of a band. Floral wreaths and barbed wires are some designs which you would often notice in arm bands tattoos. There is a strange superstition related with armband designs and it says that a closed armband harbingers bad luck. This is the reason why you will usually notice most of them left open on the inner side of the arm. Actually, the design chosen for an arm band tattoos depends upon the symbolic significance of elements used to create it, as in case of all other kinds of tattoos. These tattoos also leave a lot of room of creativity and an expert artist can work with various elements to create some innovative designs and patterns regularly. When you choose a design, you need to make sure that it matches your personality and attitude, considering the symbolism of the elements used therein.

In addition to the design, its color matters too, as it adds to the aesthetic value of the tattoo. Tribal tattoos are mostly done in traditional black or grey, while all other patterns can make use of vibrant colors depending upon the taste of the bearer. In the end, keep in mind your style and personality while choosing a design of your armband tattoo.
